Time Tunnel (1966)

Revenge of the Gods - S1-E7

Factual error: This is one of two episodes in the series where a WW2-era German MP38/40 submachine gun was used by American forces (Master Sergeant Jiggs, in this episode) rather than an American weapon such as a Thompson submachine gun.

Time Tunnel (1966)

Revenge of the Gods - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When Tony and Doug are captured by the Greeks, the lead Greek soldier points his sword to Troy. The "Troy" shown is a modern still picture of the ruins of the Greek Acropolis and surrounding structures, complete with a modern blue and white vehicle that looks like a bus in the lower left hand part of the picture.

Merlin the Magician - S1-E27

Other mistake: Usually Master Sergeant Jiggs and his men are posted as guards in the Time Tunnel control room at all times, but when Merlin shows up in the control room a second time, there are no guards to be seen.

Time Tunnel (1966)

Merlin the Magician - S1-E27

Factual error: The Vikings in this episode are fighting while wearing horned helmets. Contrary to popular belief, Vikings never wore horned helmets in battle. Some theories state the horned helmets were worn during special ceremonies, but never in battle or daily life.

The Death Merchant - S1-E25

Audio problem: At one point during Doug and Tony's hand to hand combat with the Union soldiers, the traditional Hollywood sound of a fist smack to the face is heard as Tony blocks a blow with his arm, instead of the sound of a thud.

Time Tunnel (1966)

The Death Merchant - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: When Tony begins fighting the Union soldier, Tony kicks the soldier's musket out of his hands and it lands to the right. The next overhead shot now shows the musket landed behind the soldier as Tony picks it up to fight another soldier.
